    mostly yes, but events like redbull Romaniacs o Roof of Africa take few days to complete in pretty remote places..

    This is because apparently GLONASS and the Iridium frequency that the InReach service uses conflict with each other. The Montana 700 actually does include GLONASS because it doesn't have the InReach features.

    I already have an Inreach Mini, if I was to buy the Montana 700 (Without Inreach) am I still able to connect my Inreach to the 700 the same as the XT. ie, does the 700 come with the app?

    According to the manual, the 700 can connect with the Mini which uses ANT+. The 700 has a menu item called “inReach Remote.”

    I’m having a hard time finding where it exactly states the 700 (and not the i versions) connect with ANT+ devices like the Mini.

    Edit again, the specs for the 700 do say inReach Remote and ANT+.
